Bonded aluminium single lap joints have been exposed to a fully reversed ageing environment (immersion followed by withdrawal both at 50oC) in both loaded and unloaded conditions with time dependent. Monitoring of these specimens and testing at key points on this reversed ageing environment has led to the stress rupture and moisture dependence of joint mechanical response included creep effect. Moisture cycling and stress influenced the tensile strength of the joints, with some apparent irreversible degradation. However, the effect of environmental exposure, time exposure, pre-treatment and constant stress was significant for the single lap joints damage.
